What is a dental implant ?
Dental implants Are artificial roots intended to replace missing teeth. They are made of biocompatible titanium and do not trigger any allergic reactions.
Dental implants come in different shapes and sizes in order to adapt to the needs and pathology of each patient.
Dental implants allow to regain normal chewing abilities while enjoying an irreproachable aesthetic result.
What are the conditions to have an implant ?
Once the implant is installed, we must cover it with a crown, bridge or fixed prosthesis to provide the same sensations and perform the same functions as natural teeth.
You want to replace your missing teeth without sacrificing adjacent teeth to carve out pillars like bridges.
You have missing teeth and are looking for an aesthetic, precise and safe solution. a complete denture can be solved by implants-all on 4 or all on 6
There is no age limit.
Examples of implant with crown, bridge:
If you are missing a single tooth, an all-ceramic dental crown on a dental implant is often the best choice. The implant serves as a support for the dental crown. The ceramic Crown is then attached to the dental implant.
It matches the shape and contour of your natural teeth so that no one notices the difference. Replacing a single tooth with an implant-based solution does not alter adjacent healthy teeth, and prevents constant bone loss from weakening neighboring teeth.
An implant bridge helps prevent bone loss and protect the remaining healthy teeth. If two or more teeth are missing, a bridge firmly anchored on implants offers a very good functional and aesthetic result that avoids the wearing of a removable prosthesis as well as any subsequent natural bone loss.
1- Complete Bridge of 12 to 14 teeth fixed on implant
A fixed prosthesis consists of a dental implant bridge maintained by at least 6 implants. The prosthesis is securely attached to dental implants, without covering the gum. Thus the sense of taste is preserved. The fixed bridge allows the teeth to work without any restrictions, etc.
2- Removable denture on retention bar
The retention bar serves as a support element for a removable prosthesis and is held by 4 implants. The prosthesis is attached to the bar to ensure its good hold. After its installation, a prosthesis on implants offers a functionality and aesthetics largely comparable to that of natural teeth.
The taste is also preserved because the palate is not covered by a resin device. Another advantage is that the prosthesis can be removed and cleaned.
To improve the longevity of your dental implants
The installation of dental implants is an approved technique that allows to enjoy a perfect aesthetic result with prostheses that have a very long longevity.
However, to enjoy all of these benefits, you still need to take some precautions. It is therefore essential to regularly check the condition of your dentition and monitor the evolution of implants and do any maintenance care.
